C Meng

Living between the United States and China since the 1970s, Meng’s dichotomous cultural experience informs his work’s fusion of Eastern and Western artistic sensibilities. The artist employs soft calligraphic gestures on top of broad and abstracted brushstrokes, displaying a mastery of both loose and precise mark-making. Meng’s elegant and expressive genre paintings use simple lines and notations to convey scenes from the artist’s daily life and travels—from Chinese street market scenes to European museum interiors.
